Another developer and I have the same Drupal theme installed. The other developer is the one doing the development work and I'm simply trying to import his updates into my theme so I have the latest and greatest and can see how the work is progressing. I am able to IMPORT his EXPORTED database, however, his MySQL database connection parameters are different in that he's not using a password, and my MySQL database connection parameter INCLUDES a password.
The way I am importing his export, is simply by using PhpMyAdmin, I first DROP all the website's Tables, and then simply IMPORT his EXPORT.
QUESTION IS: Which tables should I NOT Drop, and when he does his EXPORT, which Tables should he NOT Export... so I receive everything I need to get all the updates into my database, but don't have a problem with database connectivity?
